Exercise: Low impact aerobics are usually considered best for weight loss and this includes walking at a brisk rate. Exercise alone, however, will not result in the optimum weight loss. Adequate diet with aerobic exercise is the best plan for weight loss.

Which is the most effective anaerobic exercise for a beginner looking to lose weight?

Low impact: Aquatics, body weight, or resistance bands/ tubing biking, and/or elliptical. Aquatics allow you to perform body weight exercises, but being in water actually reduces the stress on your body due to buoyancy. Once you are able to perform body weight activities then look to add light resistance w/ bands/ tubing.

Type of exercise: Aerobic and controlled weight training for 30-40 min per day (preferably at one time to maximize cardiopulmonary conditioning ) is helpful to lose weight along with a carefully planned out calorie reduction strategy . Goal with aerobic activity is to get your hr up to 65-80% maximum (220-age). A 44 yo would have a max hr goal of 176. 65-80% of this would aim to keep hr between 120-140.

Varies: Ultimately, to lose weight simply means to burn more calories than you take in. There is no way one will not lose weight if they burn more calories than they take in. Exercise should begin gradually so you don't injure yourself. If you can burn 300-500 calories more than you take in you will steadily lose an impressive amount of weight.

I eat a healthy diet and go to the gym 5 days a week, burning about 300 cals each time. I'm 9st 4, is this enough exercise to loose weight?8st my goal

I eat a healthy diet and go to the gym 5 days a week, burning about 300 cals each time. I'm 9st 4, is this enough exercise to loose weight?8st my goal

Math problem: Assuming you were in a relative steady state prior to your exercise program.....To loose 1 stone or 14 pounds you need to have a negative caloric intake of approximately 46, 200 calories. At 300 calories per day you would reach your goal in 154 days. As you can see, exercise must be coupled with a diet program to work best. "healthy" diet does not always equal low calorie diet.

Past month have been on healthy diet and exercise to loose weight. So far lost 8-9 kg, today all of a sudden though sore inflamed thyroid. Related?

See a doctor: Hi. If you're correct that it's your thyroid that's tender (and you may be wrong), you could have a painful thyroiditis (PT). This has no known relationship to diet & exercise. If you have PT, over the next few months you may sequentially experience a self-limited hyperthyroid phase followed by a self-limited hypothyroid phase, then a return to normal thyroid function. Take ibuprofen for pain.

I want to loose weight but dnt have time for exercise?

Eat Healthy: Eating a healthy, well balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables is always recommended and reducing your caloric intake by limiting sugars and saturated fats in your diet. Limiting your portion sizes is also helpful, and eating frequent small meals throughout the day to boost metabolism. Don't skip meals, get lots of sleep, and try to incorporate exercise into your daily routine.

Are there ways to loose weight by eating a "normal" diet and moderate exercise?

Are there ways to loose weight by eating a "normal" diet and moderate exercise?

Yes and no: You have to create a negative energy balance which means take in less calories than you burn. So some reduction in daily calories is needed which you can do by slowly cutting back on portion size of any foods which have too much calories. Use plenty of fillers like salalds and veggies. Use fruits with each meal and avoid fat rich foods(no fried foods or fast foods). Also ovoid sweets in any form!

Is their any way to loose weight without going on a diet and without doing more exercise?

Is their any way to loose weight without going on a diet and without doing more exercise?

There isn't. Sadly.: Any healthy way to do that. I wish there was but it just isn't so. There are many very UNhealthy ways to do it, but I wouldn't discuss those. If I were to invent a pill or other healthy way to make people thin, I would quickly become the richest woman in the world. If there was an existing way, you would never see an overweight person anywhere in the world, and you wouldn't even need to ask this ?

Doctor can evaluate: Anything that uses energy (calories) will help one lose weight, as long as he DOES NOT eat or drink back more calories than used, after the activity. If walking, take a longer route; use stairs instead of elevators; take multiple trips to and from the car when unloading groceries; park a block from school and walk there with the kids; at home, skip dessert and go walk around the block instead.

Losing Weight: Recommend that calories burned exceed calories in. Drinking at least 8 8 ounce glasses per day is important for both hydration and weight control. Try to get in whole foods (fiber) as well as 5 servings of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day. Physical activity is essential. Aim for at least 30 minutes of aerobic activity at least 5 days per week ; don’t forget weight training. Be well.
